    John Legend Is Taking Time to Reflect on His Favorite Sperry Footwear

    John Legend and his bulldog, Paul, make staying home look so good

    Winter is coming and holiday is coming. It is the best timing to look for holiday gifts for your family, as well as for yourself. If you are struggling about men’s gifts, I would love to introduce the Sperry Legend Edit, a selection of John Legend’s favorite Sperry boat shoes, sneakers, and loafers. A good man always needs good shoes.

    “I chose the shoes I really loved, that I would put in my wardrobe.” – John Legend.

    John Legend, multi-platinum artist and Sperry’s 2020 Global Brand Ambassador, shares his fall closet
    must-haves—from classic styles to just-in silhouettes. Check out The Legend Edit to see what John Legend
    is wearing this season. Classic boat shoes. Road trip-ready driving mocs. Sporty-meets-stylish sneakers. It’s hard to promise you Legend-level singing skills. But his confident, cool style? It’s yours all season long.


    Men’s Authentic Original Leather Boat Shoe


    Pack the suiting pieces, and leave your loafers at home: Sperry’s A/Os are a stand-in for all occasions on your calendar.


    Go on—roll those hems, and leave the socks at home. Whether heading out to sea or off for a nightcap, the A/O is built to bare some ankle.


    When it says the A/Os are versatile, it means works-with-the-boldest-pattern-you-can-find versatile. (Their classic lines tend to play well with those out-there statements.)

    The one that started it all, the Authentic Original is a tried-and-true icon of prep style. True to Sperry’s heritage, they’re still hand-sewn using time-honored craftsmanship, with premium materials and the wet/dry traction that made them legendary. Effortlessly setting the bar for what a real boat shoe should be, seafarers love the A/O’s capability; street-farers crave its classic cool.

    Brooklyn Cloth, a Fast Fashion Line for Men that Won’t Break the Bank

    Thinking of where the cool stuff comes from in East Coast, I guess my first answer would be Brooklyn. Yes, a very artistic and young area in New York. I lived in Brooklyn for over a year, and I definitely enjoyed the culture and fashion at there. I want to introduce Brooklyn Cloth, a fashion-forward line in the “fast fashion” junior’s market, co-founded by Daron Jacob while working with Urban Outfitters and Tilly’s. Jacob noticed many of the men’s products in the mass market were too pricy, so he created fresh designs for a low price point with Brooklyn Cloth.

    Created to fit the laid-back, yet distinguished individual that roams the boroughs of New York City, the design team mirrors this demographic and lifestyle. The energy and attitude of bustling streets and the vibes of the East Coast are woven into the fabrics of the garments, giving off an authentic, pure aesthetic of this unique lifestyle. The makers design their own fabrics, beginning from the yarn level— focusing on items such as Joggers, Shorts and tees using Space Dye and Snow. Jacob notes, “We are focused on the Gen Z consumer. Someone who is not defined as one fashion or style but likes to change up their looks depending on their mood.”  

    Brooklyn Cloth® is a men’s & kids lifestyle brand that is inspired by the New York surf and skate scene. Created to fit the laid-back yet distinguished individuals that roam the boroughs of New York City, both men and kids alike. This is directly influenced by their design team whom mirror this demographic and lifestyle. The energy and attitude of their bustling streets and the vibes of the East Coast, are woven into the fabrics of their garments giving off an authentic, pure aesthetic of this unique lifestyle.
